Re: WTB/LF: T9300 or T9500 (= 2.5 GHz/2.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU)

There is something to be said for new CPU's, but I really lucked out on my aliexpress purchase; 25 bucks for a T9300! If you want to go the cheap route it is always an alternative, but know that refunds are warrantly doesnt exist in China. I can't promise you that they send you a CPU as good as mine...

It is mandatory to read real user experience before buying any Lenovo product these days, unfortunately.

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU upgrade

Fairly certain it can take a i7-3612. I have a i7-3610 in my Edge E530 with the same chipset. Its operating under a barely controlled meltdown so gi with the 3612 instead. It runs cooler.

It takes ivy bridge fine. No issues if you have the newest bios. My old G580 has a i3-3110m.

24.99 usd aftermarket battery for T42. Had it for just short of 5 years, (5 years in april). Its on 18% wear, just about lasts 2 hours.

Never had a aftermsrkrt battery last this long. They have usually halved their capacity by 2 years, and dead by 3.

You will need to insulate PIN 20. Otherwise GOBI1000, GOBI2000 and GOBI3000 will be in the EVDO mode.

Yeah, i'm out. Ripped apart a X61 to swap boards into my X61s but i dont think the smaller fan can cope. Now unless that Haswell runs load at absolute zero, i dont think the X61s fan can keep it under control either.

I use an AzureWave AW-CE123H. Half size, Wifi a/b/g/n/ac + BT 4.0. No issues so far, I'd recommend it. R Mine refuses to boot with it. Either a planar beep code or just pure black screen I went with an intel 6300, then i akso ordered that magic dell card that overclocks. We'll see about the latter.
